Cover Lover – 7 New Titles

Meh, maybe I should have said new-ish for the titles.  This is sort of a mixed bag post, to say the least.  This first one is from a favorite of mine, Cynthia EdenAvenging Angel is the fourth (and apparently final) book in her Fallen series, and it is due out on May 28th.

This next cover is from the Noon Onyx series by Jill ArcherFiery Edge of Steel is the title of the second book, and it will be available on May 28th, as well.  I get a real video-game vibe from this one.

I have been seeing this next one popping up everywhere lately.  Carniepunk is an anthology featuring a number of top writers, including Rachel Caine, Jennifer Estep, and Rob Thurman.  It will be released on July 30th.

Well, I have to admit that this cover for Darynda JonesFifth Grave Past the Light isn’t quite what I expected.  Maybe it is because I loved the reaper outfits on the previous covers, but this one doesn’t live up to the rest of the series for me.  In fact, it actually gives me a young adult vibe.  Anyways, it will be hitting the shelves on July 9th.

On the young adult side of things, Replica is a new one coming from Jenna Black on July 16th.  I am not sure as yet if this is a stand alone title, or the first book in a series.

Melissa West‘s first book, Gravity, has only recently been released, but the cover for the second book is now out.  Hover will be hitting the shelves next August 6th.

And this final one is from Aprilynne Pike.  She is starting up a new series called Earthbound next July, with the first book also being called Earthbound.

Did any of these ones catch your eye?  Are you a bit disappointed in the Fifth Grave cover like I am (I do so love those reaper outfits), or do you think it is a nice change is style?

Random Updates…

As I am going through the Series Reading list pages and updating, I am coming across a bit of new info on some upcoming releases.  As you can probably tell, I am only through the first three pages (so A-F), but it still amazes me how much info I can miss.

  • The second book of Jocelynn Drake‘s new Asylum Tales series will be called Dead Man’s Deal, and it will be out next May 7th.
  • This coming January, Lenore Appelhans will release her debut young adult book, Level 2.  Well, Amazon is now listing the second book in the Memory Chronicles series for January 2014, and it will be called…Level 3.  Huh.
  • The second book of Jill Archer‘s new Noon Onyx series, Fiery Edge of Steel, will be released on May 28th.
  • From what I can tell, there will be an e-book only anthology released February 12th called Vampires Gone Wild.  It will feature novellas from Kerrelyn Sparks, Amanda Arista, Pamela Palmer and Kim Falconer, with the Sparks story being from her Love at Stake series.
  • I enjoyed Of Poseidon by Anna Banks, and now the preorder links for book two of the series, Of Triton, are showing a release date of May 28th.  Looking forward to this one.
  • From what I am seeing around, Jennifer Lynn Barnes is starting a new young adult series in January with the release of Nobody.  It is about young people no one ever notices, which makes them the perfect assassins.
  • Some are saying this is stand alone, others are saying it is the first of a series, but Rachel Caine will release a book next July called Prince of Shadows.  It is a retelling of Romeo and Juliet from the point of view of Benvolio and Rosaline.
  • There will be a second book of the Chimney Rock series from Stella CameronDarkness Bred will be out next May 28th.

  • A fourth book from Lauren Dane‘s Bound By Magick series will be out next November.  No word on the title, as yet.
  • Also unnamed is the fourth book from Dianne Duvall‘s Immortal Guardians series, but it has a release date of October 1st.
  • Lexi George will release another Demon Hunting book next February 1st called Demon Hunting in a Dive Bar.  I completely forgot to post the cover, too.  Duh.

  • There will be an anthology featuring Jennifer Estep, Rob Thurman, and Rachel Caine coming out next July 30th called Carniepunk.  I have no clue what series the stories will be coming from, though.
